Yes, I will never take any supplements etc.
I don't think I actually have anytime to have an offseason, I play Soccer, Basketball, Volleyball, Track and Field.
I've been reading about the recovery period from that site: http://www.grapplersgym.com/public/420.cfm?sd=2
So I'll make it 2 weeks, clear myself of injuries and design myself a workout and what to work on during the summer.
Again, thanks ABPrints. You are amazing help on this forum.
Yeah, Grapplers is a good resource. Not sure I would take a full 4 weeks off as they suggest, but you sound like a pretty active kid, so 2 weeks would be beneficial. Just as wrestlers pick up nicks and bruises from the season, a basketballer needs to rest the legs a bit from all the pounding of the hardwood.
I still think if you have not lifted weights before, you can do so in the two week rest period, just no high impact stuff (plyos, olympic lifts).
After the two weeks, enter a two week active rest period where you start to increase the impact stuff slightly, one day a week of plyos, maybe a pickup game on the weekend, etc.
I've been doing some research, and that is to do fast-reps one day, 50% of MR, then one day of normal workout. I plan to do 1 day of fast-reps, and 2 days of normal workout. I'll be doing this in the offseason, since the fast-reps will be working my explosiveness, while the normal working out will increase my strength and muscle size.
